When it comes to home maintenance, plumbing is often an overlooked yet vital aspect. One of the common issues that homeowners face is limescale buildup in pipes and fixtures. This phenomenon, known as plumbing scaling or descaling, can lead to reduced water flow, increased energy consumption, and even damage to appliances. Plumbing descaling refers to the process of removing mineral deposits, primarily calcium and magnesium, that accumulate over time within water pipes, faucets, and appliances. These deposits, commonly known as limescale, arise from the presence of hard water – water with a high mineral content.
Acidic soil, salt, detergents, drain chemicals, grease and mineral buildup can decrease the longevity of your pipes. Washing grease down the drain is the number one cause of cast-iron degradation. Without descaling, these materials can ruin your plumbing and require replacement, and installing a new sewer line is costly. Descaling your sewer line and water pipes can improve your plumbing issues while increasing the longevity of your system.
Offering a full two-in-one service, 535 Plumbing has the ability to provide both full descaling and repair services, with over 15 years of plumbing experience and 10 years in renovations.
Limescale buildup occurs due to the precipitation of minerals when hard water is heated or evaporates. This is especially common in areas with naturally hard water sources. The minerals attach themselves to the inner surfaces of pipes, faucets, and appliances, gradually restricting water flow and causing potential damage. Cast-iron pipe is the most common type of piping that needs descaling, but other piping materials like copper or concrete pipes can also suffer from buildup. Regardless of the material your pipes are constructed from, if you suffer from frequent backups, drain smells, noisy or gurgling pipes, or slow running drains, you may need descaling and/or hydro jetting.
If you’re in any doubt about whether you need a descaling service, it’s worth making an appointment with 535 Plumbing and scheduling a video line inspection. The cost of a sewer line camera inspection is insignificant compared with the cost of replacing your sewer line.
